I 17 years old, 5'10 with a small frame, and I weigh 125 pounds. Am I a good/ideal weight to maintain health? Underweight? (I don't think overweight).
I want to stay thin, yet I absolutely love to eat. (gee, who doesn't?) My two favorite foods in the world are chocolate and tortilla chips with salsa. I'm considering starting a diet where I diet religiously for one whole week and then eat basically whatever I want for dinner. (It will be a whole bag of tortilla chips with a whole jar of salsa, and then eat a whole swiss milk chocolate bar from Trader Joes.) The thing is I used to binge kind of regularly (a whole bag of tortilla chips a night sometimes) and I figure that if I plan binges into my diet maybe it won't affect my weight negatively.
I exercise lightly pretty much every day (Biking, Tennis, and Some Weight Machines at my Gym) and I eat healthfully-fish,flaxseed,vegetables, and fruits. These are my only two binging foods really. I am going to college this upcoming Fall and I've heard about the freshman 15, which really worries me.
And general advice on what I should and shouldn't be doing?
